Anthems Of A Champion

Full Product Description

Known by his evangelist –musician stage name of Carman, ‘Anthems of a Champion’ is Carmelo Domenic Licciardello’s uniquely retro combination of Christian rock, pop, gospel, drama and showmanship. It’s music to make you smile and feel good about your faith with tongue in cheek tunes and lyrics, and songs-that-tell-a-story, combining fun and faithful truth without compromising either.

The featured video clip, ‘Sunday School’ Rock gives you a song and a show in the recognisable style of high school rock music concerts of the 50s and 60s familiar to fans of TVs ‘Happy Days’ and the ‘Back to the Future’ movies. Described as part evangelist, part Vegas Showman, Carman’s music is flashback to the Billy Graham Crusade style with singing, dancing, clapping and simple, direct preaching. And it clearly works. Carman has deservedly collected 2 Platinum, 7 Gold albums alongside 2 Platinum and 3 Gold for his music videos. Carman is creative and original taking the gospel and his music seriously… but not himself.

Anthems Of A Champion by Carman was published by EMI in February 2013 and is our 5548th best seller. The ISBN for Anthems Of A Champion is 5099923219328.

Publisher's Description

Carman is an enigma in Christian music, often described as part evangelist, part Vegas Showman. His concerts were more like a rock and roll Billy Graham Crusade than a Christian music event. After all the singing, dancing, clapping and preaching, throngs of people would stream down to the counseling area to accept Christ-many times as many as 5,000 in an evening. Admission was usually free, a simple offering taken, similar to 30,000 churches on Sunday mornings. And he filled the largest stadiums the world over. With 2 Platinum and 7 Gold albums and 2 Platinum and 3 Gold long-form videos, Carman is more than just an A-list artist, he is a cultural phenomenon.

There's no way you can classify a Carman song by its style but rather by the shear blunt-force impact delivery in a person's life, with an unmistakable Gospel message. If there is any original trademark to Carman's repertoire, it is what we could only identify as a 'story song'. A combination of drama, rock, comedy, funk, satire, acting, singing, and preaching, all woven together by an unpredictable wit that can only be described as a full length feature film in 7 minutes. A style not duplicated or even attempted by any other artist in any other musical genre. With compositions like "The Champion", "Lazarus Come Forth", "Mission 3:16," "Witches Invitation", and "This Blood," simply put, Carman is a true American original.

Anthems Of A Champion features the best of Carman with 4 new recordings of his hits "The Champion," "Lazarus Come Forth," "Radically Saved," and "I Feel Jesus"


Listeners' Praise for 'Anthems of a Champion'

"It's been 20 years since Carman signed to Sparrow before he released The Absolute Best, a compilation of some of his earlier work from 1985 to 1990. From there he released The Standard, R.I.O.T., I Surrender All, Mission 3:16, Passion For Praise, and his final Sparrow release, the 2-disc Heart Of A Champion greatest hits collection. After that, he released albums for different labels. In 2007, EMI, Sparrow's head company, released The Ultimate Collection 2-disc set, and the single Greatest Hits cd in 2008. Last year, Carman re-signed with Sparrow. This is his first release back on the label since Heart Of A Champion. I really enjoy listening to this CD. All my favorite songs are on here: Faith Enough, Serve The Lord, Addicted To Jesus, America Again just to name a few. I also love the new versions of The Champion, Lazarus Come Forth, and I Feel Jesus, along with the new song The Flag. It's nice to see Carman back with a new project like this. Keep 'em coming!" (other retailer's reviewer)

"This album rocks. Jesus is glorified. This music is timeless and crosses generations. Carman comes thru again for his fans and a hurting world looking for answers." - (other retailer's reviewer)

"For those of us who grew up with Carman this is a MUST, also a MUST to share with the teens and youth who did not know him in the 80's and 90's. They need to hear this icon of fun - and most of these songs are on his videos, some have been transfered to DVD, all have not, but if you need to replace, or want to they are all over Amazon and so reasonable. This album is awesome and his first major release in 10 years. Get it!" - (other retailer's reviewer)
